After almost a year of speculation whether or not this will be The Big Bang Theory’s last season, we finally know the answer. Put your soft kitty away because CBS announced today that the show was picked up for two more seasons. The press release did not say if all seven cast members will be back, but I am pretty sure they will be.
Is the news a surprise? Of course not, it is the #1 scripted show on television and it is doing phenomenally in syndication, so it makes sense that they will want to keep it around.
Now, if these are the last two seasons, check back in a year from now when we will start speculating on that again. Personally, I think they will be the final two seasons because how much longer can they keep this going? It is already starting to feel a little tired.
Are you happy the show will be back for seasons 11 and 12 or were you hoping that the show would end?
Back in 1988, we got to know Mayim Bialik and Marcie Leeds in a little movie called Beaches where they played the little version of leads. Now 18 years later, they are recreating the roles that made them stars in honor of the late Garry Marshall, the Director who took a chance on them.
It is almost like they are still the 11 year old versions CC Bloom and Hillary Whitney. So much so, that I don’t know why Lifetime didn’t cast them to play the leads in their remake. How brilliant would that have been?
The Big Bang Theory just started production on their 10th season and Kaley Cuoco, Mayim Bialik, Jim Parsons, Melissa Rauch, Simon Helberg and Johnny Galecki took a group shot. I didn’t notice happy they were to be reunited again, all I could notice is that bloody lift has still not been fixed after all of this time. If I lived in a building that’s maintenance was that bad, then I would’ve moved by now.
If this is in deed the last season, then I hope in the series finale’s last scene is that they all take the elevator together. Actually that would be a great ending. They get in the elevator and the cable snaps! I think I have been watching too many horror movies recently.
The Big Bang Theory returns on September 19th.
Mayim Bialik dressed up as several of the Star Trek characters throughout their years for CBS Watch Magazine and she revealed something about her castmates in this behind the scenes video. While she is a big fan of the Sci-Fi series, she said, “I think I might be the only cast member who has ever watched Star Trek or been to Star Trek movies.” Which is kind of a let down because they all seem to be big fans of Captain Kirk, Spock and their crew on the show. You kind of want the actors to feel the same way.
So why do the legendary franchise have such a big presence on the Emmy winning sitcom? She explained, “The Co-Creator of our show and Executive Producer, Bill Prady, is a tremendous, tremendous Star Trek fan. He said that his goal, in life, was to become famous so that he could write a show and have everyone from Star Trek guest star on it and we are pretty well on our way there.” So far there has been the late Leonard Nemoy, George Takei, Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton and Geordi La Forge. Who says dreams don’t come true in Hollywood?
Back to Mayim dressing up as the crew of the USS Enterprise, she really looks spot on as the male characters. Who knew she had such masculine features? She also passes for the women, but it is remarkable how much she passes for Data et al.
For all of you boys from the ’90s who wanted to see Blossom aka Mayim Bialik share a sexy bathroom Selfie, here it is! Does it make you say whoa?
Since I am girl, I am still waiting for Joey Lawrence to do one.
